Dr. Antuñano is the Director of the FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) in Oklahoma city, Oklahoma. Dr. Antuñano is credited with 891 professional presentations and invited lectures at national and international conferences in aerospace medicine in 41 countries. He has received 85 awards and recognitions for his academic, administrative and reserach achievements, and he is also credited with 63 scientific publications covering a variety of aerospace medicine topics. Dr. Antuñano was the first Hispanic president of the U.S. Aerospace Medical Association, and he is the first and only FAA physician member of the International Academy of Astronautics. At age 35, he became the youngest member in the history of the International Academy of Aviation and Space Medicine, and in September 2017, he was installed as its new president. 



A blacksmith’s son who turned his natural inquisitiveness into a career as one of the world’s leading inventors of scientific instruments, Dr. Arnold Beckman is a classic American success story. Dr. Beckman took what life gave him and through creativity and persistence, forged a better existence for himself and others. This desire to continually search for solutions eventually led him to the invention of the pH meter and the DU Spectrophotometer, devices that revolutionized analytical chemistry, and earned him a place in the National Inventors Hall of Fame. With his wife Mabel and daughter Patricia, the Beckman family has donated millions to academic research and medical facilities. Mabel died in 1989, Arnold in 2004, and Patricia in 2011.
